There’s an old saying: If you lie down with dogs and you get up with fleas…
Character is the aggregate of traits that form the individual nature of a person that includes their morals, honesty, reputation, integrity and ethical quality. When a person is secretive and dishonest, it may be necessary to judge their character by their associates and past statements to discern their true nature. The presumptive Republican presidential candidate, Willard Romney, portrays himself as a man of high moral character and a regular American even though his wealthy elitism and proclivity as a pathological liar tell a different story. Putting Willard’s penchant for lying and hoarding wealth aside, his association with washed-up rocker Ted Nugent informs his low moral character for pandering to the lowest element of American society.
Romney’s identity crisis has motivated him to gravitate from religious sycophant and wealthy elitist to what he thinks Americans consider normal to garner support from the hard-right whose concept of a good American is defined by the number and bibles and firearms they own. Aligning himself with un-American Ted Nugent was a calculated move to engender support from racists and subset of Republicans whose sheer hatred of America’s first African American President has resulted in fallacious accusations and lies that define Willard Romney’s low morals and highlight his acute character flaws. Willard may not overtly use hateful, inflammatory and violent rhetoric on the campaign trail, but he is exploiting pathetic anti-American sentiment to garner support for his presidential bid.
